Franz  Hohler - The Stone


"Entertaining and vivid." FAZ

What makes a young man in a demonstration pick up a remarkable stone and throw it into the crowd? Why does the president of a country get excited about a little kitten and, against the advice of his aides, give it shelter in his office?

Franz Hohler early caused a stir with the volume The Recapture and then later with The Gateau and The End of a Perfectly Normal Day. In his latest stories, he explores the barely discernable border between the probable and the improbable, between the expected and coincidence.

Enormously entertainingly and with his own unique sense for what won't fit into our daily lives, Franz Hohler's stories circle around what nobody expects but which happens all the more determinedly.

"This refreshing collection of entertaining and witty moral stories offers pause for thought over the paths taken by our lives and our attempts to make sense of them."
